Dear Mosaic Family...

As you may know, yesterday Governor Asa Hutchinson released guidance for places of worship in Arkansas, effective May 4. Our staff has been anticipating this day for some time and preparing for a methodical, responsible, and wise approach to any future assembling of ourselves together at or in our facility.

Given the governor’s guidance and with only the month of May in mind, here’s the initial plan for us at Mosaic… one by which we will take our first-steps toward a time in the future when we can all again gather in-person to walk, work, and worship God as one in Christ.

NOTE: We will continue to provide online worship at 10:45a on Sundays and strongly encourage those of you...

  • who have respiratory illnesses associated with the common cold or the flu;
  • who have symptoms similar to COVID-19 (fever, cough, and difficulty breathing);
  • who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, i.e., older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions,

...to continue engagement with us via Facebook Live or our website.

1. Sunday, May 10 (Mother’s Day)
  A. We will not be reopening the facility for Sunday morning worship.
  B. The parking lot will be open for those of you wishing to gather in general proximity to others, to say hello, and to watch the livestream in your cars, etc., while practicing “6-foot physical distancing except for family groups” per the Governor’s guidance.

2. Sundays: May 17, 24, and 31
  A. We anticipate reopening the facility for at least one Sunday morning service to accommodate up to 50 individuals in the Sanctuary at one time.
     • This will allow us to “test-drive” new safety measures ahead of larger gatherings.
     • If you are willing and interested in being part of one or more of  these three Sunday gatherings inside the facility, please contact [email protected].

  B. The parking lot will be open for those of you wishing to gather in general proximity to others, to say hello, and to watch the livestream in your cars, etc., while practicing “6-foot physical distancing except for family groups” per the Governor’s guidance.

3. Tuesday, May 12
We will email you more specific information and guidance concerning the three “soft openings” to be held on May 17, May 24, and May 31.

4. Sunday, May 31
We will announce plans for Sunday gathering in the month of June based on any additional guidance from state or local government and/or what we learn through experience in the month of May.

Make no mistake: We are hopeful and very excited at the thought of soon again being together. In so planning, we are not striving to return to the past but to embrace Jesus together in the new normal now emerging. That said, we are also committed to a process of gradual return; one that will minimize potential risks to the health and well-being of the Mosaic family, the 72204 community, and the city of Little Rock... all of which we so dearly love.

One in Christ with you,

Mosaic Staff and Elders
